  • Rudy Giuliani keeps moving the bar on the Mueller investigation

President Donald Trump tweeted Tuesday that "collusion is not a crime", echoing his attorney Rudy Giuliani's comments a day earlier.

On Monday, Meyers reminded his viewers that Trump said the hacker could be "some guy in New Jersey".

Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating possible cooperation between Trump's presidential campaign and Russians who sought to influence the 2016 U.S. election by hacking into Democratic computers and using social media to try to undermine Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The former Mayor of NY and US President Donald Trump's lawyer threatened to leave the CNN interview after he claimed he was "useless, petty and silly".

"What you're doing here is watching an exercise in the creation of "the message of the week" bubble for the Trump folks", Wilson said.

Giuliani said Monday that the Trump team actually knows of "183 recordings" from Cohen, but many of them involved people having nothing to do with Trump.

Giuliani told CNN he was "happy to tell" Mueller that Trump "wasn't at the meeting".

Rudy Giuliani Says Former Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen's Credibility Is 'Destroyed'
Trump's stupidity and disloyalty is about to catch up to him (and you)". He cited the president's tweets as being helpful to Mr. Trump has denied having had an encounter with Daniels.

Giuliani explained Trump's view is "enough is enough".

At the outset of an appearance on Fox News, Giuliani said he had been "sitting here looking in the federal code trying to find collusion as a crime". Trump believed the bureau's investigation was over and that Flynn had been cleared, his attorneys claimed.

Legal experts, however, have repeatedly said that anyone found collaborating with Russian Federation on the 2016 election could be charged with other crimes, such as conspiracy, and special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation has not concluded.

If Trump or his aides knew in advance that Russian Federation had the trove of stolen emails and did nothing to alert federal authorities, they could be accused of covering up the crime of stolen emails or working as foreign agents. As the first trial in the 14-month Russian Federation probe, the case throws a fresh spotlight on an investigation that has dogged Trump's presidency. Trump's lawyer has said he expects Mueller to file a report by September 1. So I think there is enough.

Giuliani said there are about a dozen recordings "of substance" made by Cohen.

His is the first trial in the Russian Federation investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, looking at whether the Trump campaign worked with Moscow to sway the results of the 2016 election.
